Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin announced on Monday that the team has agreed to terms with forward Tyler Toffoli on a one-way, four-year contract (through 2023-24). The deal has an average annual value of $4.25 million.
Toffoli, 28, collected 44 points in 68 games with the LA Kings and the Vancouver Canucks in 2019-20 (24 goals, 20 assists). In eight NHL seasons, Toffoli has registered 300 points (145 goals, 151 assists) in 525 regular season games while serving 150 penalty minutes and posting an impressive plus-82 differential. Toffoli tallied 11 goals and 25 points in 54 career playoff contests. The 6'0'', 196 lbs right winger was a key contributor on his team when the Kings hoisted the Stanley Cup in 2014, scoring seven goals and 14 points in 26 postseason appearances.
Toffoli, a native of Scarborough, ON played four seasons in the OHL with the Ottawa 67's before joining the professional ranks. In 252 Junior career games, Toffoli tallied 163 goals and added 170 assists, including two back-to-back seasons with more than 50 goals and 100-plus points (2010-11 and 2011-12). The right winger led the OHL in goals in his last two campaigns with the 67's.
Toffoli was selected in the second round (47th overall) by the Los Angeles Kings at the 2010 NHL draft.
